Career[edit]

Greenock Morton[edit]

Graham made his senior début for Greenock Morton on 29 April 2006, at Station Park, Forfar against Forfar Athletic. He replaced Kenny McLean after 78 minutes in a 2–0 victory for the 'Ton.[1]

Graham spent the 2008–09 season on loan at East Stirlingshire.[2]

In May 2010, Graham signed a new contract for a further year at the club.[3] Later in that season, in order to come into contention for the first team, Allan Moore ordered him and Kevin Kelbie to lose weight (despite being one of the thinnest at the club).[4]

Raith Rovers[edit]

After leaving Morton at the end of the 2010–11 season he signed for Raith Rovers in May 2011[5]

Dundee United[edit]

Graham was unveiled as a Dundee United player before the SPL club's last game of the 2012/13 season against Celtic at Tannadice, signing a two year deal as Jon Daly made an exit.[6] Graham was mainly used as a substitute in his first season, with 23 of his 36 appearances coming from the bench. He scored his first goal for the club in a 4-1 win over Partick Thistle,[7] and went on to finish the season with seven goals in total.
